A Tour Through My Art Collection 5

Porky Pig was another picture bought from the Oxford Street gallery and features him in front of a selection of lobby cards promoting his cartoons.

Lobby cards were printed promotional materials of different sizes that could either be displayed or passed out to customers in the lobbies of movie theaters. Animation historian Jerry Beck provided the 15 lobby card originals which were scanned to produce the Porky Pig Lobby Card background. These lobby cards were created during the Golden Age of Animation, both in-house and by special design studios hired out by Warner Bros.

Porky is currently on display in the living room.
